A lot of my friends are still wetting themselves over Arnold Schwarzenegger's speech on Tuesday night. I guess he did a pretty good job. Admittedly, the ideals and beliefs of the Republican party always sound better in their original German.

But it was a shrewd move on the part of Bush and his bosses, choosing a multi-millionaire former actor who married into the Kennedy family to stand up and call the millions of poverty-stricken Americans still complaining about the economy a bunch of pussies and faggots.

Kudos, Bush-Cheney 2004!!! Putting the "ass" back in "compassion."

Chris,

You called ME a hater? Here you are insinuating that Republicans are Nazis (I assume that's the implication of "the original German"), and then you put the words "pussies and faggots" into Arnold's mouth. You're just plain vicious friend.

I'm guessing that you aren't interested in the truth, otherwise you would make some attempt at more than mere personal attacks on people, but I'll give it a shot anyway:

You were very sensitive about my criticism of Kerry for what he has SAID and DONE, yet here you are slamming Schwarzeneggar solely for being succesful enough to have money. ANd you accuse him of marrying into it (showing your Herculean effort to avoid the obvious fact that he's a bloody movie star, not to mention the fact that he is well-known in California as an adept and successful business man). Did you forget that your man Kerry married into a good billion or so when he married his wife? Oh, but that doesn't matter, because Kerry is a WAR HERO!!!

You should listen closer. Arnold did not call "poverty-stricken Americans" girly-men ( that was what he said, not pussies and faggots. Remember that Arnold is a social liberal and agrees with you on homosexual issues). Arnold called politicians who were too afraid to do what was necessary to clean up California's fiscal problems girly men.

Your loose play with the facts just lost you another argument. Before you write back and say "nuh-uhhhh", come up with some reasons based in facts first.

"To those critics who are so pessimistic about
our economy, I say: 'Don’t be economic girlie men!'"

You see, when I heard that, I didn't realize that Schwarzenegger was simply referring to California's economy. Since this was the Republican NATIONAL Convention and he was extolling the virtues of George W., I just assumed he was talking about our nation's economy!

On a night when the Republicans kept yammering on and on about how compassionate they are, an incredibly wealthy man told the poor and disenfranchised to quit whining. Personally, I had to laugh.

As for the rest, yes. Admittedly it was a cheap shot, written for the sole purpose of getting a laugh. Granted it's not nearly as classy or sophisticated as jokes about rice in Kerry's ass, but what can I say? I just type it the way Jesus tells it to me.

Sorry. I thought that by mentioning the fact that he was a multi-millionaire former movie star that I had covered the movie star part. Next time, I'll try to post a copy of Schwarzenegger's bank statements and balance sheet before I crack any jokes about him.
